“The next time we play, we will go after him,” remarked Rahul. KL also spoke about the situation in yesterday’s game and stated, “After facing the initial deliveries, I analyzed the shots that I could play here. I decided to take calculated risks and play my shots, keeping in mind the bowler I was facing. As a batsman, it’s crucial to evaluate the conditions and the situation of the game and then decide which shots to play.”

The 20-year-old picked up the wickets of Shubman Gill (19), Rohit Sharma (53), Virat Kohli (3), Rahul (39), and Hardik Pandya (5) to return with career-best figures of 5/40 in ODIs. “He was spot on He got five wickets He did the job for his team. He looked the most dangerous bowler in Sri Lanka’s attack till I was playing.

Rahul’s challenge to Wellalage. What more can I say? He got five top-order batsmen out. It was a good day for him, he did well with the bat too,” Rahul told reporters after the match, which India won by 41 runs to advance to the Asia Cup final.

What made Wellalage’s performance even special was the fact that he challenged both edges of the right-handers.

The left-arm spinner then got Kohli out with one that stopped on the surface, inducing a false shot from the India great. The one that foxed Rohit was an arm ball that went on with the arm and cannoned into the Indian captain’s stumps.

Rahul challenge to Wellalage: How Rahul tacked Sri Lanka spinners

Rahul, who looked the best of the Indian batters against the Sri Lanka spinners, revealed how he tackled the tough conditions.

“After playing the first few balls I tried to figure out what are the shots that I can play here. You can into your shell, defend, and try and defuse the threat. Be careful about what shots to choose against which bowler. That is sort of an on-the-go decision you make. I’m glad the shot selections I made till the point I got worked well.

Maybe next time it might be a bit different. Yesterday was different. We were able to play more shots, but today was different. As a batter, you try and assess the situation and conditions and decide what shots you can play,”.
